Brides of the Most Blessed Trinity is a group of lay people who pray for priests, they have received several visions. One of their members Claire Rose saw a vision of a black Pope. June 01, 2003, Claire said :
“During this Holy Mass I had two visions. The first I saw Cardinal Francis Arinze` with the Pope’s Hat on his head. The tall hat. He was smiling! The second vision, I saw Mother Theresa of Calcutta. She, too, was smiling. Later as we were having lunch I was telling the two priests of my two visions. Fr. Jude began to smile. I was very surprised to learn that he knew both Cardinal Arinze and Mother Theresa! Only those who were present were told this.”
Cardinal Arinze is on the short list of eligible cardinals and because of his age (80) he is not allowed to vote but there is no age limit for cardinals voting who who can be Pope.
If elected Pope, Cardinal Arinze would not be the first African Pope, according to Sierra Express Media there were three Popes from Africa:
“It says that there have in fact been three Africans who have already been Popes, including Victor (around AD 183-203), Mechiades or Militiades (possibly AD 311-314), and Gelasius (AD 492-496). Pope Victor I (189-199) was the first to celebrate mass in Latin, the language of the people. Victor also sought to establish a universal day to celebrate Easter.
The second was Pope Miltiades (311-314) who was Pope when the Emperor Constantine became ruler of the Roman Empire. Constantine ended the persecution of Christians.
The last African to be Pope, if we are to believe the Catholic Encyclopedia and why shouldn’t we, was Pope Gelasius I (492-496).”
So if Claire Rose is to be believed now could be a good time to elect a black Pope why because we already have a black man in America who is one of the most powerful persons on a planet of 7.1 billion people.
